And Woods pours in the 5-footer for birdie! THat’s four birds in eight holes to start his round. He’s six behind the lead. Thomas and Rory also clean up birdies. On to the 9th. From the front bunker Rory blasts to tap-in range and that should be good enough for his first birdie of the day. That’ll end a run of 16 straight pars for Rors.
Putting from the same tier and similar line as Woods JT leaves his lag about 8 feet short. Let’s see if Tiger learned something there. Woods with a 7-iron…and it finds the green but only the front tier with the pin tucked in the back. It’ll be a long lag from there.
Gimme the guy with the two shot lead who closed out the U.S. Open like there was no other option. Koepka wins at 16 under. Tiger shoots 69 but grabs a boatload of Ryder Cup points finishing T10. Koepka is absolutely overpowering the place and I just don’t think he’s going to crack. He wins it with a smooth little 67 to finish 15 under. Rickie comes up two shots short Tiger three.
